I was overweight during my pregnancy. I was so scared of putting on more weight. I have high blood pressure and was afraid I was going to have cardiac problems. My doctor said she would allow me to gain as much as 30 pounds!! I was shocked! I am 5'10 and weighed a little over 300 pounds. I thought she was crazy!
I didn't eat anything out of the ordinary. I just ate what we always ate for dinner, didn't go crazy with sweets (which I love!!). I could not even walk, because I was on bedrest off and on during pregnancy. I did not gain 1 pound!! I stayed the same the whole pregnancy and when I went for my 6 week check up I was 35 pounds lighter!! I have never seen anything like it!! The doctor was fine with it-she said I was eating just fine and the baby would take whatever she needed!
You are doing just fine. Don't listen to anyone else!!!
